were greeted by Jake and Lindsay in Founder Park and Lindsay had cookies in hand! My kind of girl!! These weren’t “break and bake”, they were homemade, custom decorated cookies that looked like they came straight from the bakery! They were beautiful! (And I say “were” because they are no longer with us…. they were delicious). Jake and Lindsay were all smiles and their laughter made their shoot so joyful and so much fun! We walked the streets of Old Town Alexandria and found little nooks and crannies to shoot in!
Cobblestone streets, colorful doorways, beautiful fall leaves… it couldn’t have been a more beautiful evening. I love long distance engagement shoots because most of the time, Michael gets to come along with me! It’s so much fun for Michael to get to know our 2014 couples and join us for their shoot. It kind of feels like a little double date! :) Lindsay and Jake are going to have such a beautiful wedding day next year and we can’t wait to be a part of it!! Enjoy some of my favorites from our time together this past Friday! I’m off to host our 2nd two day workshop in our new home!! 12 Photographers from all over will be arriving soon! Can’t wait!!They are just too much fun. I loved them from the very beginning! Sharp! You two look amazing and SO classy!!! Lindsay! Look at you on the left! WOW!!! Love their smiles! They have a “thing” for ducks… and 3 mallard couples floated by just as we were shooting by the water. Perfect:) Love this.
Oh, this wedding day!! What a beautiful Texan dream! I met Melanie when she attended one of our workshops years ago in our home. She had the sweetest spirit and such a kindness about her. I remember loving how she made personal marketing her own and did headshots in a pile of Skinny Pop!! I loved her creativity and her ability to envision what she wanted in her brand.
My review of the Canon EOS R6 after shooting a full wedding day is LIVE on Youtube! I was so nervous to use a brand new camera system for full wedding day… I had my Mark IV ready in my bag just in case… but thankfully, I never had to use it! I was really hoping that I would love it and feel comfortable with it….
This wedding venue may look familiar to some of you who have been following us for a while! I photographed Meghan’s brother’s wedding a few years ago at this very same farm and venue!
Natural light photographers…. (flash photographers, we know how you would handle these scenarios and that’s awesome for your style! This is for the natural light folks!)
I’ve been hoping for this day for a very long time…. but I wasn’t sure that it would ever come. That sounds dramatic but let me explain. I LOVE my website company. Showit is incredible and the more I learn about and experience other platforms for hosting and creating custom websites, the more I realize, they aren’t really, truly “custom” at all. Showit is the website design platform for the creative. Hands-down. It’s so powerful, so intuitive and so easy to use. Years ago, Showit created a way to implement a Showit theme onto a Wordpress blog!!! Genius! I couldn’t wait for my blog to be a Showit blog…. but it never happened.
If you are like me and you’re a natural light wedding photographer, you may not love using the Canon 600 EX-RT flashes. But they are so necessary!
